I joined Ford v Ferrari after interviews with Fox VP of Visual Effects Joe Conmy and then James Mangold. James could tell you more about why he chose to have me on board, but I feel we had a similar vision of how to integrate VFX into this movie — both practically and visually, in order to get them as invisible as possible. The plan was to shoot a lot of “real” references, either for lighting or car behaviors, so that we could get as close to the reality as we can. I was on set every day, and everything on this movie was a close collaboration between all departments in order to make it as efficient as possible and not get in the way of James’s organic way of shooting.
